    Hey.
    Thanks, I'll be sure to give them a watch. Looking to enhance my knowledge of dog body language greatly!
    Although a lot of these links no longer exist, I'll look up what is still here.
    Feel free to post even more relevant articles :)

    Yeah, the second post you have made in this thread 'a rich source of links', doesn't seem to work. Also some of the videos I cannot access because they are private.
    But, I have purchased the Brenda Aloff Dog Body Language book which should be arriving either today or tomorrow!!

    That's a major problem with the 'Net, it's not a library with a Dewey-Decimal shelving system, where so long as no-one steals the book nor shelves it in the wrong place, IT'S THERE -
    Web pages are removed, moved, altered, access is privatized, etc. Entire websites are taken down; the progressive desensitization program for doorbell / knocking reactivity by a well-known Vet-Behaviorist was removed after 10-yrs as a publicly-posted resource. :---(
    .
    None of the video-links i posted were 'private' at the time.
    I'd post a comment & ask the owner to please provide the passcode.

    SFAIK, Trish King's clips & Emily Larlham's videos are still ALL public-access.

    Patricia isn't a vet-behaviorist, but a clinical behaviorist; she recently retired.
    Many of her seminars were recorded by Tawser Productions, who rent as well as sell them.
    If U don't want to buy it for keeps, see if it's on the rental list. ;-}

    Thank you ever so much @leashedForLife , I really appreciate all these resources you've posted :)
    I know of Patricia McConnell and have watched a few of her videos. I really like the way she presents them, might just be something to do with her very likeable personality! I have also read one of her books, 'The other end of the leash', which I thoroughly enjoyed!

    Yeah, I will be sure to add to this thread if i come across any relevant resources!

    BTW this lady is a Web-buddy of mine, she's in the UK -

    "AnimalCrackers" is her user-name.
    .
    Don't miss the clips of her mini-donkey, Bertie, learning to fetch a bumper,
    & her young
    daughter does an incredible job with untrained, spooky ponies who belong to a neighbor.

    this gent is another Web-buddy, Leonard - he's in... Germany, i think. Terrific trainer.

    want to see a great example of abject terror?... :( Here it is...
    .
    .
    Screen Shot 2017-03-15 at 1.43.05 PM.png
    .
    .
    commissure pulled back as a slot.
    Nostrils & pupils are dilated.
    Ears out & down.
    half-height walk, with belly close to the ground.
    Tail down.
    Head at chest level, chin below sternum.
    Whole body is contracted - trying to shrink; look how tight that left forepaw is, & the tight contraction of the RIGHT one, which is weight-bearing & should be s.p.r.e.a.d. by the pressure of their wt - ditto the off rear leg (the left ), the
    paw is EXTREMELY contracted, barely making contact with the substrate, instead walking on the 'claws' not the pads.
    .
    Petrified - poor thing. :(
